Have you ever heard of Cinco de Mayo? It’s a hugely popular holiday in the US, celebrating the unlikely Mexican army’s victory over France in the Franco-Mexican war at the Battle of Puebla on May 5, 1862; hence the name which translates to 5th of May. 

In recent years, it rose in popularity across the globe in Japan, South Africa, Australia and of course the UK. Usually, people celebrate with large parades or private parties with folk dancing, mariachi music, Mexican food and drinks.
